The first question I would ask is “Are you licensed by the Health Department?” This is the agency that monitors all permanent makeup- and tattoo artists. The main thing that concerns them is public safety.

We must have an annual Blood Bourne Pathogens class given in person, not online. Also Hepatitis b vaccinations are mandatory for safety. You should see a current certificate on the wall along with the health dept. license. You should also be able to see your needle come out of a pre-sterilized packet. The second question is: “Do you do this full time?” That is important as far as basic skills, color understanding and commitment to the profession.

Always look at healed pictures of their clients, make sure that you are looking at their work. Also general cleanliness is important. A PM artist should always draw in the area for your approval of the shape. This may seem strange, but if the PM artist is set up to work on you from just one side, you will probably be uneven. The best thing is to talk to other clients and look at their work. The most important thing is to trust your feelings. You should feel safe and well cared for.
